Plugsurfing has partnered with Jaguar Land Rover to supply a premium charging service for Jaguar Land Rover electric vehicles in selected markets in Europe.
Through the apps, Jaguar and Land Rover electric vehicle drivers can see whether a charging station is available or occupied. Drivers can choose to rapid charge before reaching their destination or charge at normal speed upon arrival.
“Everyone switching to an electric vehicle asks, ‘where do I charge my car?’ Thanks to this partnership with Jaguar Land Rover, we are able to remove one of the largest barriers to switching to an electric vehicle. We know that another barrier to switching is the availability of charging infrastructure for electric vehicles. Plugsurfing is working to influence and drive infrastructure policy to expand the number of charging points available across Europe for Jaguar and Land Rover users”, Jacob van Zonneveld, CEO, Plugsurfing says.
From 2020 all new Jaguar Land Rover vehicles will be electrified. A portfolio of electrified products across the model range will embrace fully electric, plug-in hybrid and mild hybrid vehicles, giving customers even more choice.
Drivers choosing an all-electric Jaguar I-PACE performance SUV will be given free access to the Jaguar Public Charging app, whilst Range Rover or Range Rover Sport plug-in petrol-electric hybrid (PHEV) customers can download the Land Rover Public Charging app for free. Both apps easily locate 70,000 charging points and pay for the charging session. Customers will also receive a universal charging card that allows them to use most charging points across Europe.
Plugsurfing is Europe’s largest charging network, covering 70,000+ charging points in 30 countries. As a strong partner of car manufacturers, fleet operators and leasing companies, Plugsurfing ensures seamless access to charging points and easy payment for any electric car driver.
We believe that technology can solve problems that really matter. Creating products like Plugsurfing can make the world a more efficient and greener place. Plugsurfing was founded by Adam Woolway and Jacob van Zonneveld in 2012 and is located in Berlin. Since 2018, Plugsurfing has been owned by Fortum.
